Scottish Parliament rejects ID cards

22 November, 2008

Power to the People Now, whilst I fully accept that this will not make one jot of difference to the current Labour government it is nonetheless, symbolic given it demonstrates that the government will have an uphill struggle to introduce identity cards. Scottish MSP’s do not believe ID cards will increase security or deter crime […]

Scary video

David Davis This is a bit scary, but hey now! You didn’t come to this blog to be told how nice it is to live under a Panopticon State. This stuff has not been viewed enough for our liking here, so we will forthwith promote it:-

How the Conservatives were the first party in modern-times to propose State Identity Cards

8 November, 2008

David Davis (not that one…) Amid the current ID-card-driven masturbatory glee of our “home” “secretary”, “Jacqui” “Smith” over how many people “come up to her and say they want one” (one what?), it’s worth recalling what Michael Howard said in 1994.

Over at British Politics, a recent article caught my eye, this was related to comments made by a Home Office Minister, which suggested that the government had the powers and perhaps, even the will to designate existing documents as identity cards. This could, for example, be passports or more likely drivers licenses. There is even […]

2 November, 2008

I have become increasingly angered by the the way the British government has become obsessed with tracking and recording each and everyone of its citizens on countless databases throughout the public sector. I am so angry, I am driven to action because, although I have my own website, Power to the People, I recognise that […]
